2021 Suez Canal grounding
Main article: 2021 Suez Canal obstruction
At 07:40 Eastern European Time (UTC+02:00) on 23 March 2021, the ship was passing through the Suez Canal on its way to Rotterdam from Tanjung Pelepas[10][7] when it became stuck and blocked the canal.[6] According to a statement by the Suez Canal Authority, the ship ran aground diagonally after losing the ability to steer amid high winds and a dust storm.[11] In a separate statement, Evergreen Marine said that it had been told the ship "was suspected of being hit by a sudden strong wind, causing the hull to deviate from [the] waterway and accidentally hit the bottom".[1][11] The ship ended up with its bow wedged in one bank of the canal and stern nearly touching the other.[12]

The ship had been running fifth in a northbound convoy, with fifteen vessels behind it when it ran aground. Traffic in both directions was blocked for at least 4 days, leading to a traffic jam of over two hundred vessels.[1][13] Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement (BSM), the technical manager company that manages the container ship, denied earlier reports that the vessel had been partially refloated.[14] In addition, trade experts are worried of a supply chain delay and tension due to the indefinite delay to not just the trapped ships, but any vessel that was planned to cross the Suez.[15]

Eight tugboats worked to re-float the vessel in collaboration with a Komatsu excavator removing sand from the side of the canal where the bow of the vessel is wedged.[16][17] After an overnight break the rescue work resumed in the morning of 25 March.[18]

An unnamed Egyptian official was reported as saying that refloating the ship would take days if not weeks. Lt. Gen. Ossama Rabei, head of the Suez Canal Authority announced, "The Suez Canal will not spare any efforts to ensure the restoration of navigation and to serve the movement of global trade." BSM and SKK said that all 25 crew are safe and accounted for. All crew are Indian nationals and remain on board.[19][20] And there had been "no reports of injuries or pollution". Egyptian meteorologists reported that high winds and a sandstorm had affected the area on the day of the grounding, with winds gusting as much as 50 kilometres per hour (31 mph).[21]

Addressing a press conference on 27 March, Rabie, chairman of the SCA, said that weather conditions were "not the main reasons" for the ship's grounding, adding, "There may have been technical or human errors ... All of these factors will become apparent in the investigation."[23]

The ship was partially freed from sediment and re-floated on 29 March 2021 at 05:52.[24]

The ship was finally freed in the afternoon at 15:05 EGY (13:05 UTC),[25][26] and the ship started moving under tow towards the Great Bitter Lake for technical inspection, the first step to reopening the canal,[27] planned for later that day.[26] After the canal had been checked, in case there had been damage, the Suez Canal Authority informed shipping agencies that shipping was to resume from 19:00 local time (17:00 UTC).[28]
